MPO can confirm rumours that Mike Peters & the New Electric Band will be touring in May as Special Guest to Big Country on the “Final Fling Tour” (Big Country’s Farewell tour before splitting up).
Mike and the boys are very much looking forward to returning to the UK in
May. Mike will be playing with a full electric line up and for those of you
who witnessed the shows in December, you will know that this tour promises
to be really special!Set List
The set list included: Marching On, Knife
Edge, 68 Guns, Where Were You Hiding, Spirit Of 76, Blaze Or Glory,
Regeneration, Breathe (not in any particular order).
Brilliant set by the lads with last nights all awaited
Really good set and per last tour – the lads were out
to rock BC off stage and they did (biased opinion
The band were on for 45 minutes instead of 30 minutes
last night and nearly all the crowd watched the lads.
(Katrina Copping, Ipswich)
Mike on stage at 8.00 and opens with Declaration/Marching On, then into
Where Were You and Knife Edge … a short 40ish minute set which also
included, Breathe, Spirit, 68, Blaze, Regeneration and I sure there was at
least one more song.
As ever the MPO fanbase was out in force in the audience ensuring that Mike
went down well, and also a lot of the BC fans were suitably impressed and
watched the whole set, talking to 2 girls on the train home, they had never
seen Mike before but look like converts to the MPO and want to head to the
Norwich show tonight.
